    Rationale for the qualifications:
    This qualification is meant to prepare qualifying learners for practice as paralegal practitioners in all sectors of the industry, which include:
  • Community-based Advice Offices
  • Non-governmental organisations
  • Public institutions
  • Commercial institutions
  • Private practices

    Many indigent people continue to be denied access to primary legal services, as a result of inter alia unjust past policies, legislation and practice. People from historically disadvantaged backgrounds continue to face challenges in gaining access to the legal profession. The response to these historical constraints has been the development of a paralegal sector. While changes have taken place since 1994, the social need for access to justice has demonstrated the value of a paralegal sector. There is increasing demand for quality primary legal services. Paralegals provide essential support to indigent communities, as well as technical support to legal practitioners in private, commercial, public and non-profit organisations. This diploma addresses a significant demand in the industry for qualified paralegals.

    This qualification will establish minimum standards and contribute to quality service provision throughout the industry. By providing a corps of equipped paralegals, the qualification will increase access to affordable primary legal services. The diploma includes outcomes that expand on and reinforce the learner's value system, and will therefore contribute to the protection of communities from misconduct and unethical behaviour.

    The diploma contains legal, administrative and social knowledge and skills. It is aimed at a developing, changing and diverse sector. Flexibility will allow service providers to develop learning programmes that are responsive to community, industry and learner needs. The service provider must indicate which sector(s) it caters for and select a suitable cluster of legal areas.
    The diploma intends to equip learners with the necessary life skills and has an integrated approach on critical cross field outcomes.

    This qualification will provide a career-path for those qualifying learners intending to further their studies in all sector of the paralegal or legal profession. The qualification is in portable unit standard format and unit standards could contribute to qualifications in the legal field, as well as qualifications in development, public administration and the commercial fields. The unit standard based nature of the qualifications will facilitate the accumulation of credits through institutionalised and workplace learning. The qualification provides learners who have gained relevant experience in the workplace with an opportunity to gain credits through a RPL process. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is assumed that learners enrolling for this qualification will have acquired all the outcomes in the following learning areas:
  • Communication at NQF level 4
  • Numeracy skills at NQF level 4

    Integrated Assessment:

    Applied competence (practical, foundational and reflexive competencies with regard to legal, administrative and social knowledge and skills) of this qualification will be achieved if a candidate can integrate the various unit standard outcomes to be able to perform as a Paralegal Practitioner in any of the paralegal sectors.

    Ongoing formative assessment is required so that learners are given feedback on their progress in the achievement of specific learning outcomes. Summative assessment is concerned with the judgement of the learning in relation to the exit level outcomes of the qualification, which tests the learner's ability to integrate legal, administrative and social knowledge and skills and paralegal values. The assessment methods must include observation (e.g. during client counselling), product evaluation (e.g. draft legal documents or arbitration agreement) and questioning (oral and or written) to provide sufficient opportunity to the learner to demonstrate applied competence.

    Integrated assessment at the level of this qualification provides an opportunity for learners to show they are able to integrate concepts, ideas, skills, values and actions across unit standards to achieve competence that is grounded in and coherent in relation to the purpose of the qualification. A paralegal representing a client must demonstrate a range of legal knowledge including theory and procedure; utilise key legal skills including drafting as well as non-legal skills like case-file management and finally handle the case with professional and ethical conduct. An assessment of client representation (e.g. portfolio of evidence) would thus examine competence in a range of unit standards.

    Integrated assessment must judge not only the quality of the observable performance but also the thinking and understanding that underpin it. Assessment tools must also encourage learners to give an account of the thinking and decision-making that forms the basis for their demonstrated performance. An integrated mix of task-orientated and theoretical assessment tools should be used with the ultimate focus being on the assessment of applied competence.
    In other words, the assessors must use a range of tools to test demonstrated competence in a practical situation (e.g. simulation or learnership on paralegal practitice) as well as oral or written examination (on application of advanced legal knowledge), that integrates the assessment of all specific outcomes for all the unit standards.

    Assessment should ensure that all specific outcomes, embedded knowledge and critical cross-field outcomes are evaluated. The assessment of the critical cross-field outcomes should be integrated with the assessment of specific outcomes and embedded knowledge. 

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    The National Para-Legal Institute of South Africa (NPI-SA), a convenor of the Para-Legal Working Group of the SGB for Legal Education and Training, conducted a web-site survey to determine international comparability of this diploma.

    The survey was conducted among leaders of various Para-Legal associations, service providers and Para-Legal learners in the different countries. Research articles on paralegals and paralegal education were also examined. Finally, specific qualifications were compared.

    The survey results reveal international comparability in terms of the timeframe for the qualification, the access to the qualification, the ability to acquire the qualification through workplace learning and many of the competencies addressed by unit standards. The diploma's principles of flexibility and an emphasis on integrating legal and administrative skills were also found to be comparable.

    All qualifications compared cater for a particular sector of paralegals -South Africa is unique in seeking to address the needs of paralegals working in all sectors. International comparability was tested in the following countries:
